Sometimes just getting started is half the battle….my brother and sister-inlaw have a nice bookcase in their living room that holds books, photos and toys. The problem is that it had gotten over cluttered and was driving them crazy but with two young kids in the house it was just one more thing in their long list of to-dos. Yet everyday there it was, mocking and frustrating them. I knew we could get it done in no time, less than an hour even, I’m pretty sure they thought it would take much longer. This bookcase is a command central of sorts and I knew it would make a big difference for them if it was organized. Since I love tackling small things that make big impact I was more than happy to lend a hand.
I was right, it didn’t take long at all. Afterwards my sister-inlaw said to me “you have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do that”. Once we got going things were flying into the purge pile so fast I was having trouble keeping up with them! They did an awesome job! The best part? A couple of days later my sil went out and bought a tote and organized all her son’s craft supplies, something else she’d been wanting to do for awhile. And that my friends is how it goes. Once you see how easy and rewarding it is to tackle one small space, the impact of those results will make you want to do it over and over and over again….until you become an addict like me :)

DON’T DELAY, START ORGANIZING TODAY, LITTLE BIT BY LITTLE BIT!!!
